Now that the advocates of high license
aaloona with regulation have secured the
aignatures to their petition for an election
to vote en the question the question has
arisen, Will the Excise board issue liquor
licenses 1 fthe vote is in favor of saloons.
Exciseman Powell said he would not
vote for a proposition' to grant licenses to
forty saloons. Further than that he would
not commit ' himself. One year ago Mayor
tovvwlwiratanffldati ran on a platform 1
which, provided; that he. would abide by the,
Vot df the people on the liquor question.
This statement was made In the press at
the time of the campaign by those who
sponsored his candidacy.
So those Who are responsible for the
petition which has been clrculatd have
little fears that Lincoln 'will not have
saloons If the people vote in favor of
Agitation and Independents.

Karly Settler at Superior.
SUPERIOR, Neb., Jan. 26. (Special.)
James Hunter, aged 83 years, 8 months
and 6 days, was burled here. Hi came to
Nebraska In 18i8 and located In Superior
In 1875. He was among the first settlers
of this town, hauling the lumber from
Edgar; that was long before there was a
railroad running into Superior. With his
brother Alex, who Is still living In this
city, he opened a general store here about
1S75. They also operated a store at Rub
ens, Kan., Just across the state line. At
that time Rubens was the most promising
town in the whole country and the wise
ones said It would be the commercial cen
ter of. southern Nebraska and northern
Kansas. But today Rubens is simply a
country store without even a postofflce.
The Hunter brothers conducted their store
here until a few years ago, when they
so d to' two sons of Alex Hunter, who
recently closed out the stock.
Interarban After Franchise,
FREMONT, Neb., Jan. 26. (Special.) At
the regular meeting of the, city council last
evening a petition was presented by the
Nebraska Transportation company, the or
ganization which expects to build an inter
urban line between Omaha and Fremont,
for a franchise. The proposed line will
enter the city on Third street, running west
to H street, thence north on H street to
Military avenue and thence west on Mili
tary avenue to the city limits, with a branch
up Park avenue to the city park, the road
to be operated by electricity or other power
than steam locomotive and the fare within
the city limits to be S cents. The matter
was referred to a special committee of the
council and the city attorney. There seems
to be the opinion among many here that
some provisions should be Inserted In the
ordinance by which sooner or later the
company should pay the city something for
the franchise. -
